Limoncello is a liqueur particular to Italy, and very popular in the Amalfi coast, where Francesco from Don Ciccio hails. It is an infusion of lemons and zest in spirits with sugar. You can also find an “Orange Cello” or Mandarinetto and a Fico d'india (“Fig Cello”) from Don Ciccio. To close out the evening, a sweet something in a flute is always nice. The combination of fruit brandy, limoncello, and some bubbles should be a great way to end any evening.
